I love my small town. Even if we don't have any fast food chains. Or a mall. Or even a large grocery store. (FYI: All of these things can be found in the bigger cities all throughout Mexico.) Our biggest store is a Farmacia Guadalajara. It's like a mini-Rite Aid. (Very mini.)
But I will admit, that I sometimes wish we had a few of these modern conveniences/luxuries.
One day, while walking Hope to school, I noticed a new construction project underway. The round arches, let me know that it wasn't going to be a house. And it has what looks like two street entrances. Very much like a drive-thru.
I asked Hubby if he had heard anything about what was being built. Which of course he had. One of his customers had mentioned that it was indeed going to be a drive-thru. Yipee!
I was so happy and hopeful, that I started to wonder...Is it going to be a McDonald's? Perhaps a Burger King? Or what if it's a Subway? I read that they just opened one up in Patzcuaro.
Then we heard from someone else that it was going to be an automatic car-wash.
But that turned out to be untrue. (Gotta love the small town gossip mill!) Finally, we heard from a very reliable source (my neighbor who is supplying some of the construction materials) that it is definitely going to be a drive-thru. But not of the fast-food variety.
It seems that we are soon going to have one of those Beer Can drive-thru's.
I don't know about you, but this is not my idea of progress.
